Rangitāne supports establishment of Ka Uruora Te Tauihu
Rangitāne o Wairau has supported the establishment of Ka Uruora Te Tauihu – a collective Te Tauihu iwi programme of housing and integrated services supporting Te Tauihu iwi whānau to achieve financial independence and improve their wellbeing.
The new charitable trust, established and governed by Te Tauihu iwi, will be focused on the delivery of a continuum of healthy, affordable housing solutions in Te Tauihu, including affordable rental and progressive home ownership solutions, alongside education and services to support whānau to achieve housing and financial independence, to ultimately improve their wellbeing.
The programme will be delivered under a partnership model, working with both Crown and community funding partners, with the support of best-in-class service providers.
We are excited to bring this kaupapa to Te Tauihu and are looking for two purpose driven people to join our new Ka Uruora Te Tauihu team. If you’re interested in working alongside our whānau to achieve success, find out more about the new Pou Tūhono | Iwi Navigator roles in Te Tauihu by clicking here. Applications close on 16 January 2023.
Rangitāne o Wairau Kaiwhakahaere Matua (General Manager) Corey Hebberd, who is Rangitāne’s representative on the governance structure of Ka Uruora Te Tauihu, says “the establishment of Ka Uruora Te Tauihu is about smarter housing solutions through collaboration and partnerships”
“By working together with other Te Tauihu iwi through Ka Uruora Te Tauihu, we are able to take advantage of opportunities to scale up our support and services to whānau”
“Ka Uruora Te Tauihu is currently being established and more information on how to access services will be shared with whānau once these structures and our team are in place”
